By LOU LITTLE Head Conch, Columbia University NEW YORK—Football's unending history has been the battle for supremacy between the offense and the defense and if any proof were needed that the battle has not yet been decided, it would be provided by the glittering array of varying defensive formations which have blossomed out this season. A few years ago, experts were worried because the defense had caught up with and overhauled the attack. Scores were not running high. There were too many low-score tie games; too many games decided by a single point. Something had to be done to strengthen the offense. Rules were liberalized on the forward pass. The sideline zone was established. The lateral pass was given some measure of protection. Scores mounted. The offensive took the upper hand. Games were more exciting. Flayers and spectators had more fun. But the coaches whose duty it is to consider ways and means of keeping the opponent from scoring, as well as to devise means of scoring on the opponent, couldn't let things go at that. Eastern Coaches Get Wise In Texas, where the forward pass is and has been for some time the offensive staff of life, they had been playing five-man defensive lines. The idea was primarily defense against the pass. Occasionally n Texas team came cast or north, tried out the five-man line, and we ran their ends for long gains and touchdowns. Thus the five- man line was in disrepute in the east, where the running attack is still the basis of football. Here and there, however, an eastern coach began to experiment with the five-man line in practice with the idea of getting a maximum protection against the pass without sacrificing strength against the running game. Suddenly, within a few months, the idea look root and this fall, almost without warning, the game has been breaking out in a rash of unorthodox defenses that improve tremendously on the original Texas version. Chiefly the advance has come in the varying of defenses on virtually every play—the variations being made as the offensive team conies out of the huddle and into formation. If the team goes into one formation, two ends may drop back, with a backer-up going up into the line. On another formation one end may drop back. The backer-up who goes into the line in the first instance may vary according whether the strength of the formation is right or left. Mixing of Assignments Result is a mixing of assignments that is confusing lo running linemen arid blocking backs. The 'attack is meeting a different defense on practically every play. In other words, the defense is taking on almost us much pit-determined strategy as the offense. What's the answer? Maybe it will lie in speeding up the attack, getting the play under way before the defense •an make these changes. We've grown a little slow earning out of the huddle and getting the ball into play. Maybe we'U even have to go back to calling signals; perhaps to more shifting. It's certain that the attack c'rom now on must be better balanced than ever, with that balance well ed between passing ability, speed and deception, and power. The day is certainly gone now in which a team which possessed only power, or passing ability, or even good speed and deception, cain get by. You're going to need all three from now on. All of which makes it look like better, more entertaining-football. (Copyright 1937, NEA, Service, Inc.) Bobby Dodd Told He's a Proud Papa, Faints ATLANTA—Bobby Docld, Tennessee's great quarterback and All-America, never was fazed by charging linemen but when he was informed that his wife had given birth to a 9-pound baby girl, Bobby, now assistant coach at Georgia Tech, fainted dead away. His doctor ordered him to bed for three or four days to recover from nervousness. Holding Out? Wife: "What is this thing, dear?" Hubby: "Only a pawn ticket." Wile: "Why don't you get two so we can both go?" Socking Wysocki ArtistJExplains Painting With a Puzzling Poem PITTSBURGH.— (/P)— The world will know what happened to Narcissus — if it can figure out the poem artist Salvador Dali has written to explain his painting "Metamorphosis of Narcissus" in the 1937 Carnegie International Art exhibit. But it won't be esay, because this is the way the poem goes: J 'Narcissus loses his being in the cosmic vertigo "In the deepest depths of which is singing "The cold and dyonisiac siren of his own image." Dali, a No. 1 surrealist, has painted a plaster-like figure of Narcissus and a big hand holding an egg. The guide book to the exhibit says the way to appreciate the painting Is to stare at the figure of Narcissus until it isn't a figure any more but only a hand holding an egg. There you have it: that's just what happened to Narcissus. He stared at himself until he turned into a hand holding an egg. Then the egg hatched.

The Zebras will be after their eighth consecutive win within the Arkansas high school conference, a record that could not be duplicated because othelf members did not schedule that many 1 league games. The classic pits two hard-running elevens against each other, with the Tigers having a slight edge in power and Pine Bluff more deceptive. Blytheville, only other undefeated conference club, scheduled only five games this season. The Chicks take on Searcy, non-league member, this week. Camden, getting warmer as the season progresses, is favored over Fordyce. The El Dorado-Hot Springs and Hope-Russellville' clashes are tossujis. Benton, Fort Smith and Forrest City go outside the conference. Benton takes on the Prescott Curly Wolves, Fort Smith entertains Fayetteville, and Stuttgart goes to Forrest City. The North Little Rock Wildcats, stopped last week by Pine Bluff, invade Newport. Conference Standings: Teams— Won Lost Pet.
